I loved the way the episode ended almost exactly where it started.  Made me
smile and think how the wheel just keeps turning.

>> we can't just ship somebody off to Russia or Singapore if we don't like
them.  Real life is a lot more complicated, and this show is patterned after
reality as much as possible.

Up until the coup, was the EA government pretty good? They seem pretty
non-intrusive. They also seem pro-commerce, and very efficient (requiring a
military installation to be self-sufficient) as well as not paying for everying
in sight (like getting the lurkers off B5).

Just curious as to how free people are use to being.

      The EA was fairly easy going, but remember that people are used to a
heavy governmental hand during the Earth/Minbari War.  It's in a way similar to
the situation we had post WW2; the only way we could make it past that war and
survive was through strict discipline, following orders, going along with
rationing, conserving, everything.  And it was that positive attitude that
those who came later would exploit in the McCarthy/Red Scare 1950s, and hit us
sideways in the 60s.

     No, I don't believe I'm slated for Babcom 96, but I will be at the
Encounter in the UK in April or so.  (Details are in the library somewhere.)

   Not sure if this is old news, but I just picked up a copy of the
November/December 1995 issue of "Sci-Fi & Fantasy MODELS" which proclaims on
its front cover "FREE with this issue, Babylon 5 Blueprint Worth L2.95!!"

   One of the ads inside the mag offers models of "B.5 STAR FURY, 1/32 scale
approx 8" long.  12" long wingspan ltd to 50 kits".

   Are these blueprints and star fury models legit?

      Nope, this is strictly illegal.  Could you send me a copy of the magazine
at the following address, so we can nail their heads to the wall? Babylon 5,
